  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir quinoa until water evaporates and quinoa is lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until quinoa has absorbed broth, about 10 minutes. Cool quinoa in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.

  • Mix together green bell pepper, red onion, corn, black beans, cilantro, tomato, lime juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil, adobo seasoning, and feta cheese in a large salad bowl.

  • Lightly stir in quinoa; season with salt, pepper, and additional lime juice to taste. Chill salad at least 30 minutes before serving; serve cold.
